Students Across America Participate In #NationalWalkoutDay
Today marks a historic day in America. For almost 20 years now, since the Columbine massacre in 1999, the United States has been ravaged by mass shootings, many of them at public schools and college campuses.
The children who attend those schools have had e-f**king-nough. March 14, 2018 is #NationalWalkoutDay and students all over the country have abandoned their classrooms and taken to the streets to let the state and federal government know that they no longer wish to be murdered while trying to receive an education.
According to CNN and NYDailyNews, Students from LaGuardia High School in New York, Sayerville High School in New Jersey, Maryland’s Montgomery Blair High School, Walworth Barbour American International School in Israel (yes, ISRAEL!!!), Florida’s grieving Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and scores of other schools have sanctioned walkouts in solidarity of a common cause.
Common sense gun reform.
Sadly, some hatin’ azz adults want to stifle the voices of the youth like this heffa at Cambridge High School in Milton, Georgia.
In other cities, it appeared that some schools were completely apathetic to the cause…
One girl was even arrested for her civil disobedience.
Watching America’s youth take grown azz people to task for their incompetence and inability to take action against violence is truly glorious.
Be clear, there is FAR more love and support than hate.
